Demi Lovato, Eating Disorders and Life after Drug Rehab

Eating Disorders Drug Rehab

Updated on

Recently, actress Demi Lovato discussed eating disorder and addiction treatment with Fabulous, a British magazine. Lovato entered rehab in November 2010 and is still actively working on her recovery. Constantly being in the spotlight, a consequence of being a celebrity, causes insecurities about weight that can certainly trigger an eating disorder relapse. Lovato said that she still needs to work on such insecurities before comfortably returning to her busy life as an actress.

Eating Disorders Drug Rehab

It is not uncommon for individuals to simultaneously suffer from substance abuse and an eating disorder. It is important for addicts to receive the proper drug rehab that addresses their eating disorder and helps them build a strong foundation for recovery from both illnesses. Eating disorders and addiction can have deadly consequences; a dual diagnosis treatment center can help you or a loved one break free of their grasp.

Once a relapse prevention plan is made in inpatient treatment, individuals will have to be especially alert to eating disorder and substance abuse relapse triggers. Some of these may be the same for both disorders and some may be different. In any case, it is important to recognize that recovery is a life-long process that takes work to sustain. Following recommendations made in a relapse prevention plan and staying committed to recovery are essential to success.
